Bath and Springboks flanker Francois Louw has told the media that team-mate Nick Koster will come good after injury problems.

The former Stormers number eight has been limited to a couple of performances in the Amlin Challenge Cup so far due to a knee issue and Louw, who played with Koster in Super Rugby, believes that he has plenty to offer.

"Nick's done very well coming back from an injury and performed pretty well in the two games he has played against Calvisano," Louw told the Bath Chronicle.

"He scored a brilliant try on his debut but that was only showing just a little bit of what he can bring to the table.

"I know what he can do. I played with him at Stormers back in South Africa and he had lots of good games there, so I'm very excited to have him here.

"All the guys have shown a liking to him. He's a positive player, a good loose forward and someone who can add a lot of value to the club.

"Nick has got a lot of talent and can bring a lot to Bath, and I believe he will bring a lot.

"I'm looking forward to seeing him on the pitch again because he had a long-term knee injury which held him back a bit.

"He's easing back into it and there's definitely a lot more to come from him."
